Plans for an Intensive paper-savinir
campaign today are being worked
out by the War Industries Board.
They -Rill be submitted to Washing
ton merchants for trial, and success
locally will foreshadow their adoption
by other cities.
Co-operation in the paper-savtnsT
campaign waa promised by a repre
sentative group of Washington mer
chants at a meeting yesterday after
noon. The meeting was called by
E. O. Merchant, of the War Indus
tries Board, to get suggestions from
those affected by the proposed order.
Discussion developed the fact that
a majority of local business houses
already have Inaugurated paper-sav
ing plans, and their ideaa will ie used
In formulating a comprehensive con
servation program. With an ever
increasing scarcity of wrapping paper,
Washington merchants are attempt
ing savings wherever possible, it was
declared, and further reductions in its
nse will be given fan consideration.
The shop-Uftlnr problem was dis
cussed in connection with the delivery
of unwrapped goods, and peeOU pr
cactions will be taken tc prevent steal
ing of articles sold without being
wrapped. According to Samuel Hart.
secretary of Lansburz. & Bro., Inc.
shop-lifting has Increased 100 per cent
In the last two years, aad presents a
most important problem in store man
Delivery of unwrapped articles across
the counter offers added inducement
for the shop-lifter to ply his trade,
Jfr. Hart declared. Use of a sticker
to indicate that the goods had been
sold to the customer was sajfrested.
A similar sticker is already being nsed
by Goldenberra and is a great success,
it was declared.
Among the suggestions offered was
one by Mr. Merchant, of the war In
dustries Board, who urged a saving
on letter heads. He suggested that
the backs of letters received could he
used for the carbon copy of the reply.
This method has been followed by
the paper atid pulp section of the War
Industries Board, and has resulted in
Will Work Ont Order.
Detailed suggestions will be worked
out by the War Industries Board in
conference with leading merchants,
and will be incorporated in the form
of an order In the next few days.

YOU defeat your own best interests if you assume that present
day prices of oil important commodities are excessive.
For example, consider the price of good lumber, now and "before the war.
As a matter of plain fact, the price of lnmber to-day is amazingly low, all things considered.

The foregoing clearly indicates that the value of Southern Pine, measured by its exchange value with other com
modities, is far lower than it was before the war, and that its advance in cash C08t has been far less than
almost any other important commodity.
Southern Pine still remains the most economical and serviceable building material on tho market one essen
tial commodity that is NOT high.
